Wasp Barcode Technologies Raises the Bar for Precision, Speed with New WLS 9500 Laser Barcode Scanner

Proven technology delivers upgraded performance to small businesses at an affordable price

PLANO, Texas - Oct. 12, 2006 - An updated laser barcode scanner announced today by Wasp Barcode Technologies will give small business users unprecedented reading reliability and range. Available immediately, the new Wasp WLS 9500 laser barcode scanner replaces the top-selling Wasp WLS 9000 and offers added functionality for the same list price.

Users can quickly and accurately capture data from a variety of items without pausing between scans. The fast scan rate and decoding capabilities ensure that employees are able to process more items rapidly and spend less time keying in data.

Designed especially for small business, the Wasp WLS 9500 offers proven laser scanning technology in a solution that is ready to use right out of the box. New features include a multi-line rastering scan pattern, adaptable read range and motion tolerance, and RoHS compliance.

The WLS 9500 is designed for use in even the harshest warehouse or manufacturing environments. With a 6-foot drop specification, the scanner keeps working even after being dropped repeatedly on concrete. The scanner also provides a read range of up to 29 inches, with superior motion tolerance that ensures accurate scanning of a wide range of barcodes even at this extended read range. These capabilities prove useful for quicker point-of-sale scanning in retail stores, for precise scanning in pharmaceutical laboratories and distribution facilities, and for versatile scanning in general office use. The device's RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substance) compliance ensures that the WLS 9500 supports the latest directive by the European Union.

"This is the latest addition to a product line that already sets the standard for laser barcode scanning," said Steve Coffman, president of Wasp Barcode Technologies. "The small businesses we serve are using barcode scanners more and more. They appreciate the high quality, precision and productivity gains associated with the WLS 9500, especially at its affordable price."

Wasp WLS 9500 is available immediately at a list price of $325. It can be purchased from direct marketing retailers such as CDW, TigerDirect, PC Connection and Insight. It is also available through computer resellers including WaspLink value-added resellers (VARs) and other leading retailers such as Fry's Electronics, CompUSA and Micro Center.
